Medium Voltage AL cables in port and harbor installations

Hi,
Is it common practice to install AL cables in harbor/seaport environments?
I know that there may be some corrosion issues with AL cables in the terminations. However, if all cables are installed in conduits and terminated in switchgear within substations I would imagine that corrosion would not be a problem.
Any thoughts on this?

Thank you
